Exotics/Avian Emergency

If your exotic or avian pet requires emergency care and your regular veterinarian isn’t available, Long Island Veterinary Specialists can help. Our emergency and critical care center is fully staffed and prepared 24/7 for all exotic, avian and other pocket-pet emergencies.

As an owner of an exotic pet, it’s important to understand that when these animals are critically ill, they often don’t show overt signs of illness. So if you notice your pet isn’t behaving as usual, it might need care right away.

Getting the appropriate emergency care immediately can make all the difference in your pet’s recovery. If you think your pet may need emergency intervention, please bring them to the LIVS emergency center any time, day or night.
